Guignardia citricarpa is not present in Peru

The Ministry of Agriculture in Peru has recently informed the EPPO Secretariat that Guignardia citricarpa (EPPO A1 quarantine pest) is absent from Peru. There were old reports of citrus black spot in Peru, but these have not been confirmed. In addition, recent surveys carried out by the official authorities of Peru in collaboration with APHIS have failed to detect G. citricarpa.
